Raphael Hospital Development goes into administration

Raphael Hospital Development appoints administrators

Deloitte has been appointed as administrators to Raphael Hospital Development Ltd.

Restructuring partners at Deloitte, Rob Harding and Nick Edwards, have been appointed as joint administrators.

Raphael Hospital Development Ltd is a holding company whose subsidiaries own and operate 12 private hospitals providing specialist brain injury care in the south of England.

The subsidiary entities that own and operate the hospitals remain outside of the insolvency process and continue to run whilst various options are being considered.

Glenside Manor Healthcare Services Ltd operates nine facilities in Salisbury and Farnborough, while Raphael Medical Centre Ltd manages three operations in Brighton and Hildenborough, including The Raphael Hospital.

Rob Harding, joint administrator at Deloitte, said: ‘We are working with operational management, local authorities and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and considering all the options available to us.

‘These include seeking a purchaser for the subsidiary companies. We will look to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and that all staff and patients are appraised of developments as they happen.’

The Raphael Medical Centre Limited said that it is continuing to trade as normal under the control of its  directors and relevant registered individuals.

Gerhard Florschutz is no longer a director of the company and Philip Smith has now joined as a director.

It said: ‘The board continues to lead the operations, and management of these companies will now reside with them. We are liaising with the CQC to take steps to update the registered individuals of our facilities where appropriate.’
